The purpose of this study is to detect, in the urban linguistic landscape, evidence of the evolution of the relationship between two communities and their gradually getting closer. Through the analysis of shop signs, posters, notices, display panels present in Paris and Milan Chinatowns, the authors first analyze an aspect so far not much investigated by the scientific literature: the signs in Chinese produced by French or Italian people. Secondly, the research takes into account the signs produced by the Chinese community, highlighting the evolution towards an adaptation to local communicative characteristics. The study is based on two corpora, one consisting of signs, the other of interviews.
Keywords: Linguistic landscape, urban sociolinguistics, Milan and Paris Chinatowns, Chinese language
